The sober-curious movement has come full circle in Sydney, with Australia's first non-alcoholic distillery, Seadrift, having opened the doors to Sydney's first non-alcoholic bar, Seadrift So-Bar. Whether you're a strict teetotaller, taking a break from the booze, or simply want to enjoy some tasty grown-up drinks without the hangover, So-Bar co-founder Carolyn Whiteley says: "There is huge demand for quality non-alcoholic drinks, but too often people don’t know what to try. We decided to launch the Seadrift So-Bar so people can explore the world of non-alcoholic drinks in a casual and relaxed environment reflective of the Northern Beaches.”
The bar will serve up house cocktails featuring Seadrift Classic – a gin, of sorts, infused with botanicals of tarragon, coriander and subtly saline sea-kelp – as well as a huge selection of international and local non-alcoholic spirits. Have a crack at the French 75, made with Seadrift Classic, Odd Bird non-alcoholic Prosecco, fresh lemon juice and a lemon twist, or ask the resident bartenders to whip up a cocktail of the day.
